    I'm not sure where the limitation is here, but it would be great to have essentially unlimited (128+) outputs from Maschine as a multi-out VI.

    I've been solely in Maschine for quite a while but have been wanting to integrate it into a DAW like Logic or PT. I know Maschine has a bug where the multi outs don't work in PT right now so I tried it in Logic. It's absolutely awesome working on ideas in Maschine then just routing every sound as a separate track and doing proper mixing in the DAW (w/plugin delay compensation, proper automation, recording/freezing etc)

    However 16 is not nearly enough outputs considering that's just a single group of the 4 x 4 pads for example.

    In order to fully go this route you'd need a lot of separate Maschine instances which is cumbersome.

    Like I said I'm not sure if this is a Maschine limitation or VI spec limitation and I don't know if it's also 16 in PT, but if there's some way it could be higher it would be great.

    Yes, more I/O is a must. Kontakt supports 64 IIRC.

    Was working in Logic again and hate the workflow of changing Maschine instances.

    I think 128 would be perfect.

    Then you have one whole page of 8 groups x 16 pads available.

    I’d be willing to start a new instance after 8 full groups but per group is terrible.

    This would be an absolute workflow-changer.
